Conference Details

Over the past two years, many leader discussions and member surveys resulted in a need for a more focused Summer Leadership Conference agenda. CEA needs to build capacity in locals to engage more members in our collective actions going forward. We also anticipate an increase in challenges to our ability to collectively act to maintain and improve our working conditions. In response to these growing challenges, CEA has developed a new Summer Leadership program.

This online registration details each of the workshops and mini-sessions that are being offered July 31 through August 2. In addition, free participant eligibility is explained. Your local can send as many as eight participants free to this conference—three free in the Building Representatives/Emerging Leaders workshop and five free in all other workshops.



Each local association may send up to eight free attendees this year. Contact your Local Association President prior to registering to determine if you are eligible to attend at no cost.

If you do qualify, your Local Association President can register you or you can self-register using the special code given to you by your LP so that no charges are incurred when you register.
